Mesoamerica, during the Pre-Hispanic times flourished for nearly 4000 years.
After four days of fasting, chile Colorado was the meal given as a gift during festivities to Micuilxochitl.
Micuilxochitl was the Mayan God of the flowers, dance, games and love. Men and women with an improbable appetite had an active part on this celebration.
The Mayan Empire were agricultural people who originated about 1000 B.C. Cooking with these peppers, the magic continues in 2020.
Chile Colorado makes my heart skip a beat! Made of tender pieces of beef simmered in a rich and flavorful combination of dry, red hot peppers sauce.
We can hear the country speak and learn its secrets through its stories and its recipes.
As we say in Mexico “Buen Provecho.”
